Double Note Blues Bass Lines

About This Lesson

Double Note Blues Bass Lines

Here are some very common patterns to play for blues bass lines.  In all of these examples you’ll play at least two notes together at some point…that’s why they are called “double”.

NOTE:  In the right hand, you will notice that I often play E G A C for the C7 chord.  That is called a C6 chord and you can voice it by playing 3 5 6 8(1) of the major scale.  Nice sounding chord for a lot of blues and western swing tunes.
